Add Emote to Locker
The first thing you need to do if you want to find out which key to press for dance on Fortnite from PC is to start the game, so that you can add the Emote toLocker, that is the section dedicated to the personalization of your virtual avatar.
To do this, select the icon of theEpic Game Launcher that you find on the Windows desktop or in the macOS Launchpad and, once logged in to your account, press the button Start that you find in correspondence with the video game Fortnite.
Once the game has started, select the game mode of your interest by clicking on it (for example, click on Battle royal), then press the button Esc, so that the screen appears Lobby.
Now, go to the section Locker, to add the Emote of the dance to the quick keys that you will subsequently assign, as I will explain in the next chapter.
To do this, click on the menu item Locker located in the bar at the top, then, in correspondence with the section Emote, tap on the symbol (+) and select the dance Emotes you have unlocked by clicking on them. Then confirm the addition by clicking on Save and exit.
You can add up to 6 Emote to the “wheel” of the same; this, as I will show you in one of the next chapters, can be activated in game, by pressing the pre-assigned button or the one you customized.
Check the key assignment
Once the Emote of the dance atLocker, go to the menu of Settings to view the commands section and know which key to press to dance on Fortnite (a key that, as we will see shortly, you can also modify to your liking).
To proceed, click on menu symbol (☰) located in the upper right corner, then, in the relevant drop-down menu that appears on the screen, click on gear symbol, to view the section Settings. Now, press on arrows symbol that you find located at the top, to see the card Input. This is the section on the list of all game controls and their default keys that have been assigned.
As you can see, the key used to dance on Fortnite is called Emote; by default this is assigned to the key (B). However, if you want to change this automatic assignment, click on the wording (B) and then press the key on the keyboard you want to set as the dance command.
In the key assignment screen, also refer to the item Locker Emote Slot and also to the one named Repeat the last Emote. The first is used to activate one of the 6 Emote previously assigned in the locker, while the second is used to quickly repeat the last one Emote performed. These keys are not assigned by default (as you can see it says Not assigned). Then click on it to assign a key to your liking.
If, on the other hand, you’ve connected a controller to your computer, click the controller symbol located in the tab at the top: in this way, you can see which is the relevant button dedicated to the dance. In this case you have to press the key Down arrow.
How do you say? Would you like to play Fortnite with a controller, but don’t know how to connect it to your computer? Then I suggest you read the procedure I gave you in some of my guides dedicated to this topic, in which I explained how to connect the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 or Xbox One pad to your computer.
Finally, if you have changed the default assignments for the Fortnite commands concerning the use of the keyboard (the controller commands cannot be reset), press the button Esc, in order to return to the main menu and, in the screen you see, click on the item Save, to confirm the changes you have made.
Dance on Fortnite for PC

Once the game has started, to dance on Fortnite, you just have to press the button (B) that is the default key, or the one you previously assigned.
Pressing the key in question, as you can see, will open a virtual wheel through which you can select, by clicking on it, the dance you want your character to perform or theEmote with which you want to express yourself.
If you have also assigned commands for Locker Emote Slot and for repeat the last Emote, you can press them to make your character dance with one of the Emote previously assigned inLocker.
